In a World full of tensions and suspicions reality confronted a nation on September 11, 2001 that was out of sync with geopolitics. Previously atrocities caused by Muslim terrorists visited borders external to this nation. With the advent of Nine Eleven the American conscious was awakened to the fact Muslim radicals wanted to draw us into a conflict they have been fighting for millennia. Over the ensuing 13 years the psyches of the average citizen have been immersed in the daily reports of death and violence perpetrated by a group waiting to be civilized. Whether we like it or not a radical theocracy is on the move and the U.S. is in their sights. President Obama’s irrational Middle East policies have caused consequences not foreseen by the Administration. Haphazard withdrawal of our troops from the area has exited many to once again use barbaric acts to force religious intolerance on those who want to be left alone. ISIS, a word once equated with an Egyptian Goddess, can now claim a new home within the structure of a terrorist group. World-wide attention has been focused on ISIS’ brutality. Grotesque treatment of anyone who does not run with the ISIS agenda is seen in its culture of damnation. Beheadings, rapes, murders of the aged and the young are their signature achievements, nothing more. These actions can instill fear into any rational mind and have redefined a radicalism that is ravenous for acceptance. Yet America’s complacency rises to pre-World War II levels reinforcing the belief this nation is untouchable by a foe ten thousand miles away. Knowing the latter is not true has not moved the Administration to act in a responsible manner. Collective efforts by the international community, to tread lightly, appears to have emboldened not retrenched this enemy of humanity. Decades ago a minor sub-segment of the Arab community began hijacking jets and commandeering ships. After Nine Eleven entire nations were their new targets. Sadly there is not global condemnation of their hideous acts as the recent decapitation of James Foley displays. Thanks to our wayward President and a fawning media Muslimization of the American mind will continue until they realize the danger this group portends. Our country is starved for leadership which is not present in the current Washington crowd. In the next election consider all factors before voting for people who hate America and everything it stands for.
